Anyone else on iOS suddenly able to download video via cell data? I noticed it was doing this today, and then at&t texted me about my astounding data usage, which suggests it's been doing this for the past few days.

I almost entirely consume videos from GB via RSS. That y'all decided to break it in this manner was enough for me to cancel my subscription. It's ridiculous that your server doesn't generate standard errors when we don't clear the hurdles you put up. It's ridiculous that the expectation is to dig in the forums to find this thread to make RSS work. It's always been ridiculous that the RSS feeds only hold 15 videos.

After hearing the half-answer on this letter, I needed to post something to hopefully help out the person who wrote in the letter this week about importing Amiibo from Japan. The gang had only a little useful information on the topic.

1. First you'll need a forwarding service. Head on over to https://www.tenso.com/ (click 'English' in the top right) and setup an account.

2. Next if you're ordering from Amazon.co.jp, head over there, and login with your usual Amazon credentials. Your login works on international Amazons.

3. Tenso provides an address for you to have sellers send stuff to. Setup that address in your Amazon.co.jp account.

4. Order a bunch of stuff that Amazon.co.jp won't ship to the US. Then it'll arrive at Tenso, where they can either combine the shipments into one forwarded shipment, or they can forward each shipment separately.

Personally, I've only done steps 1-3 here. Haven't seen an Amiibo that I need to import quite yet. Also, note that Tenso will charge for the forwarding and the additional cost of shipping, so obviously there will be additional costs there over the price of the Amiibo from Amazon.co.jp.

The alternative is to order from importers like Play-Asia.com or NCSX, like they mentioned on the Bombcast. But setting up Tenso will free you to import stuff they don't have in stock.

Hey @keen314

You are indeed a subscribed user on our end. Can you watch premium videos?

I think Rorie fixed me up sometime yesterday.

I had my sub end last week, so I manually resubbed with a fresh credit card. After entering my payment info, I got this error:

Error: Looks like a problem occurred between our site and our payment processor. Please DO NOT try to sign up multiple times, as this may wind up leading to multiple charges. Get in touch with us at support@giantbomb.com and we'll let you know when it's safe to sign up.

So I followed the instructions, and emailed Support. No word back. Today, I see that the charge has cleared on my credit card, so I've paid. But my account still doesn't show a sub.

This letter from the editor is disappointingly waffley.

Has anyone tried Nature Box? How easy is it to cancel?

So, is it expected that the app will periodically forget all your wishlist and library games? It seems like once every few months it'll do that to me.

I'd like to thank whoever sent that email this week about the proper bombcast email address. We all gotta do our part to help Brad host properly.
